View Full Version : [all variants] Brother QL550: Unsupported format 'application/postscript'!

July 10th, 2009, 06:48 AM
Hi, everyone!

This is the first time I post and I'm sorry if it's not the right place ...

I'm having problems printing (actually, trying to print) with a Brother printer (model ql550) that I installed in Ubuntu.

I downloaded linux drivers for the printer from:


I think that i installed the drivers just fine since I can see the printer in CUPS. However, whenever I try to print, let's say a file o even to perform a printing test I get a dialog box with the following error message:

Unsupported format 'application/postscript'!

It seems to me that CUPS is not recognizing whatever I want to print as a valid format and may be that's why it isn't actually asociating the formats with the printer. Any chance of this happening?

Has anyone had a similar issue or has any idea to solve this?

Thanks in advance!
